Bone resorption induced by parathyroid hormone is strikingly diminished in collagenase-resistant mutant mice. (1/3417)

Parathyroid hormone (PTH) stimulates bone resorption by acting directly on osteoblasts/stromal cells and then indirectly to increase differentiation and function of osteoclasts. PTH acting on osteoblasts/stromal cells increases collagenase gene transcription and synthesis. To assess the role of collagenase in the bone resorptive actions of PTH, we used mice homozygous (r/r) for a targeted mutation (r) in Col1a1 that are resistant to collagenase cleavage of type I collagen. Human PTH(1-34) was injected subcutaneously over the hemicalvariae in wild-type (+/+) or r/r mice four times daily for three days. Osteoclast numbers, the size of the bone marrow spaces and periosteal proliferation were increased in calvariae from PTH-treated +/+ mice, whereas in r/r mice, PTH-induced bone resorption responses were minimal. The r/r mice were not resistant to other skeletal effects of PTH because abundant interstitial collagenase mRNA was detected in the calvarial periosteum of PTH-treated, but not vehicle-treated, r/r and +/+ mice. Calcemic responses, 0.5-10 hours after intraperitoneal injection of PTH, were blunted in r/r mice versus +/+ mice. Thus, collagenase cleavage of type I collagen is necessary for PTH induction of osteoclastic bone resorption.  (+info)

Postoperative tetany in Graves disease: important role of vitamin D metabolites. (2/3417)

OBJECTIVE: To test the authors' hypothesis of the causal mechanism(s) of postoperative tetany in patients with Graves disease. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Previous studies by the authors suggested that postoperative tetany in patients with Graves disease occurs during the period of bone restoration and resulted from continuation of a calcium flux into bone concomitant with transient hypoparathyroidism induced by surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective study was carried out to investigate sequential changes in serum levels of intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH), calcium and other electrolytes, 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD), 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D), and bone metabolic markers in 109 consecutive patients with Graves disease who underwent subtotal thyroidectomy. RESULTS: Preoperative serum iPTH levels negatively correlated with ionized calcium levels and positively correlated with 1,25(OH)2D or 1,25(OH)2D/25OHD. After the operation, there was a significant decline in levels of ionized calcium, magnesium, and iPTH. Serum iPTH was not detected in 15 patients after surgery. Four of these 15 patients, and 1 patient whose iPTH level was below normal, developed tetany. Preoperative serum ionized calcium levels were significantly lower, and iPTH levels were higher, in the 5 patients with tetany than in the 11 patients who did not develop tetany despite undetectable iPTH levels. The tetany group had significantly lower serum 25OHD levels and higher 1,25(OH)2D levels, and had increased 1,25(OH)2D/25OHD as an index of the renal 25OHD-1-hydroxylase activity than those in the nontetany group. These results suggest that patients with a high serum level of iPTH as a result of low serum calcium levels (secondary hyperparathyroidism) are susceptible to tetany under conditions of hypoparathyroid function after surgery. CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative tetany occurs in patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism caused by a relative deficiency in calcium and vitamin D because of their increased demand for bone restoration after preoperative medical therapy concomitant with transient hypoparathyroidism after surgery. Calcium and vitamin D supplements may be recommended before and/or after surgery for patients in whom postoperative tetany is expected to develop.  (+info)

Megalin antagonizes activation of the parathyroid hormone receptor. (3/3417)

Parathyroid hormone (PTH) is predominantly cleared from the circulation by glomerular filtration and degradation in the renal proximal tubules. Here, we demonstrate that megalin, a multifunctional endocytic receptor in the proximal tubular epithelium, mediates the uptake and degradation of PTH. Megalin was purified from kidney membranes as the major PTH-binding protein and shown in BIAcore analysis to specifically bind full-length PTH and amino-terminal PTH fragments (Kd 0.5 microM). Absence of the receptor in megalin knockout mice resulted in 4-fold increased levels of amino-terminal PTH fragments in the urine. In F9 cells expressing both megalin and the PTH/PTH-related peptide receptor (PTH/PTHrP receptor), uptake and lysosomal degradation of the hormone was mediated through megalin. Blocking megalin-mediated clearance of PTH resulted in 3-fold increased stimulation of the PTH/PTHrP receptor. These data provide evidence that megalin is involved in the renal catabolism of PTH and potentially antagonizes PTH/PTHrP receptor activity in the proximal tubular epithelium.  (+info)

22-oxacalcitriol suppresses secondary hyperparathyroidism without inducing low bone turnover in dogs with renal failure. (4/3417)

BACKGROUND: Calcitriol therapy suppresses serum levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH) in patients with renal failure but has several drawbacks, including hypercalcemia and/or marked suppression of bone turnover, which may lead to adynamic bone disease. A new vitamin D analogue, 22-oxacalcitriol (OCT), has been shown to have promising characteristics. This study was undertaken to determine the effects of OCT on serum PTH levels and bone turnover in states of normal or impaired renal function. METHODS: Sixty dogs were either nephrectomized (Nx, N = 38) or sham-operated (Sham, N = 22). The animals received supplemental phosphate to enhance PTH secretion. Fourteen weeks after the start of phosphate supplementation, half of the Nx and Sham dogs received doses of OCT (three times per week); the other half were given vehicle for 60 weeks. Thereafter, the treatment modalities for a subset of animals were crossed over for an additional eight months. Biochemical and hormonal indices of calcium and bone metabolism were measured throughout the study, and bone biopsies were done at baseline, 60 weeks after OCT or vehicle treatment, and at the end of the crossover period. RESULTS: In Nx dogs, OCT significantly decreased serum PTH levels soon after the induction of renal insufficiency. In long-standing secondary hyperparathyroidism, OCT (0.03 microg/kg) stabilized serum PTH levels during the first months. Serum PTH levels rose thereafter, but the rise was less pronounced compared with baseline than the rise seen in Nx control. These effects were accompanied by episodes of hypercalcemia and hyperphosphatemia. In animals with normal renal function, OCT induced a transient decrease in serum PTH levels at a dose of 0.1 microg/kg, which was not sustained with lowering of the doses. In Nx dogs, OCT reversed abnormal bone formation, such as woven osteoid and fibrosis, but did not significantly alter the level of bone turnover. In addition, OCT improved mineralization lag time, (that is, the rate at which osteoid mineralizes) in both Nx and Sham dogs. CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate that even though OCT does not completely prevent the occurrence of hypercalcemia in experimental dogs with renal insufficiency, it may be of use in the management of secondary hyperparathyroidism because it does not induce low bone turnover and, therefore, does not increase the risk of adynamic bone disease.  (+info)

The structure of human parathyroid hormone-related protein(1-34) in near-physiological solution. (5/3417)

Parathyroid hormone-related protein plays a major role in the pathogenesis of humoral hypercalcemia of malignancy. Under normal physiological conditions, parathyroid hormone-related protein is produced in a wide variety of tissues and acts in an autocrine or paracrine fashion. Parathyroid hormone-related protein and parathyroid hormone bind to and activate the same G-protein-coupled receptor. Here we present the structure of the biologically active NH2-terminal domain of human parathyroid hormone-related protein(1-34) in near-physiological solution in the absence of crowding reagents as determined by two-dimensional proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy. An improved strategy for structure calculation revealed the presence of two helices, His-5-Leu-8 and Gln-16-Leu-27, connected by a flexible linker. The parathyroid hormone-related protein(1-34) structure and the structure of human parathyroid hormone(1-37) as well as human parathyroid hormone(1-34) are highly similar, except for the well defined turn, His-14-Ser-17, present in parathyroid hormone. Thus, the similarity of the binding affinities of parathyroid hormone and parathyroid hormone-related protein to their common receptor may be based on their structural similarity.  (+info)

Calcium absorption and kinetics are similar in 7- and 8-year-old Mexican-American and Caucasian girls despite hormonal differences. (6/3417)

To assess the possibility of ethnic differences in mineral metabolism in prepubertal children, we compared measures of calcium metabolism in 7- and 8-y-old Mexican-American (MA) and non-Hispanic Caucasian (CAU) girls (n = 38) living in southeastern Texas. We found similar fractional calcium absorption, urinary calcium excretion, calcium kinetic values and total-body bone mineral content in the MA and CAU girls. In contrast, parathyroid hormone (PTH) concentrations were greater in MA girls (4.01 +/- 0.47 vs. 1. 96 +/- 0.50 pmol/L, P = 0.005) than in CAU girls. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations were lower in MA girls (68.9 +/- 7.7 vs. 109.4 +/- 8.4 nmol/L, P = 0.001) than in CAU girls, but 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D concentrations did not differ between groups. Seasonal variability was seen for 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations in girls of both ethnic groups, but values in all of the girls were >30 nmol/L (12 ng/mL). We conclude the following: 1) greater PTH levels in MA girls than CAU girls are present without evidence of vitamin D deficiency; and 2) differences in 25-hydroxyvitamin D and PTH concentrations between MA and CAU girls do not have a large effect on calcium absorption, excretion or bone calcium kinetics. These data do not provide evidence for adjusting dietary recommendations for mineral or vitamin D intake by MA girls.  (+info)

Pregnancy decreases immunoreactive parathyroid hormone level in rats with chronic renal failure. (7/3417)

Normal pregnancy is associated with an increase in serum parathyroid hormone and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (calcitriol). The effect of pregnancy on these hormones in chronic renal failure (CRF) is unknown. The present work was undertaken to study the changes of serum immunoreactive parathyroid hormone (iPTH) and calcitriol in pregnant rats with CRF. The following experimental groups were studied: CRF1 (5/6 nephrectomized virgin female rats), CRF2 (5/6 nephrectomized pregnant rats at day 20-21 of pregnancy), CRF3 (5/6 nephrectomized rats 2 weeks after delivery) and their respective sham-operated control groups: N1, N2 and N3. The 5/6 nephrectomy (CRF1) resulted in renal failure with very high serum iPTH (100+/-18 pg/ml) and low calcitriol levels (10.6+/-4.3 pg/ml) compared with normal rats [N1: 14+/-2.5 pg/ml (P<0.001) and 18.2+/-4.2 pg/ml (P<0.01) respectively]. The pregnancy in CRF rats (CRF2) resulted in normalization of serum iPTH levels (18.2+/-5.41 pg/ml), which was associated with a parallel increase in serum calcitriol (29.4+/-8.0 pg/ml) similar to that in pregnancy of normal rats (N2). Two weeks after delivery the CRF rats (CRF3) once again had high serum iPTH (87+/-17 pg/ml) and low calcitriol levels (9.3+/-1.2 pg/ml), similar to those observed in non-pregnant uraemic rats (CRF1). It is concluded that pregnancy decreases serum iPTH in 5/6 nephrectomized CRF rats most probably by the increased level of calcitriol synthesized by the feto-placental unit.  (+info)

Acute fasting diminishes the circadian rhythm of biochemical markers of bone resorption. (8/3417)

OBJECTIVE: Biochemical markers of bone turnover exhibit circadian rhythms with the peak during the night/early morning and the nadir in the late afternoon. The nocturnal increase in bone resorption could theoretically be caused by the absence of food consumption which brings about a decrease in net calcium absorption and an increase in parathyroid hormone (PTH), followed by increased bone resorption in response to the body's demand for calcium. The aim of the present study was to assess the influence of a 33-h fast on the circadian variation in biochemical markers of bone turnover. DESIGN: Eleven healthy premenopausal women (age: 24+/-5 years) participated in a randomised, cross-over study consisting of two periods: either 33h of fasting (fasting) followed 1 week later by a 33-h period with regular meals eaten at 0800-0830h, 1130-1230h and 1800-1900h (control) or vice versa. METHODS: Urinary CrossLaps (U-CL/Cr) corrected with creatinine, as a marker of bone resorption; serum osteocalcin (sOC) as a marker of bone formation; serum intact PTH (iPTH); serum phosphate; and serum calcium corrected with albumin. RESULTS: Both the fasting and the control periods showed a significant circadian rhythm in U-CL/Cr (P<0.001), but the decrease was significantly less pronounced in the morning hours during the fasting period. Fasting resulted in a significant decrease in serum iPTH (throughout the study period) as compared with the control period (P<0.05-0.001). No change was observed in sOC by fasting. CONCLUSION: Food consumption has a small influence on the circadian variation in bone resorption, independent of PTH. The fall in iPTH during fasting may be secondary to an increased bone resorption produced by fasting.  (+info)

Parathyroid hormone (PTH), a polypeptide consisting of 84 amino acids that is synthesized and secreted by the parathyroid glands, is a principal regulator of calcium homeostasis through concerted action on kidney, intestine and bone. Parathyroid hormone exerts its action on bone to release calcium into the extracellular fluid as a process of bone remodeling and also to maintain the serum calcium concentration, but the exact mechanisms are not fully understood. In some circumstances, PTH may exert an anabolic action on bone and can stimulate osteoblast proliferation and mature osteoblast function. The net effect of exogenous PTH administration on bone turnover depends on the pattern of delivery. A continuous long-term infusion gives a net decrease in trabecular bone volume, whereas daily single injections result in a net increase.. NPS Allelix Corp. is developing ALX1-11, recombinant human parathyroid hormone (1-84), for the treatment of osteoporosis. ALX1-11 is identical to the endogenous intact ...
The healing of fractures in intact rats after PTH administration has not been studied before. However, PTH treatment has been used in two studies on the healing of fractures in rats with pathologic bone metabolism and delayed fracture healing.25, 26 Kim et al.20 used ovariectomized rats and showed that the decreased mechanical strength seen in fractures after 28 days of healing could be partly prevented by giving the animals 175 μg of PTH(1-84)/kg/day. This dose corresponds with the 60 μg of PTH(1-34)/kg/day used in our experiment (18 nmol and 15 nmol, respectively), and equal molar of PTH(1-84) and PTH(1-34) induces equal anabolic bone effects when given to rats in the dose-range 1.1-30 nmol.7, 15 Fukuhara and Mizuno19 studied parathyroidectomized rats with and without PTH administration during the first 5 weeks of healing. Applying histologic techniques, they found that PTH administration enhanced both bone formation and resorption in the early stage of healing, whereas bone resorption was ...

N2 - The determination of the primary structure of bovine parathyroid hormone (PTH) has enabled us to carry out the synthesis of the first N-terminal 34 amino acids of the molecule. This synthetic fragment has both phosphaturic and hypercalcemic activity, confirming that the biologic actions of PTH are expressed by a short sequence of the native 84 amino acid sequence. Serum immunoreactive PTH of patients with surgically proved parathyroid adenomas decreases with induced hypercalcemia and increases in response to hypocalcemia caused by EDTA infusions. These findings challenge the concept of parathyroid adenoma autonomy. Further studies of selective venous catheterization and immunoassay of serum samples obtained from various sites ...
Paricalcitol allowed the achievement of target parathyroid hormone levels better than cinacalcet in patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT), a complication of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Both a vitamin D receptor activator such as paricalcitol and a calcimimetic such as cinacalcet effectively treat SHPT, which is characterized by elevated serum levels of intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH). Elevated iPTH levels can lead to skeletal and cardiovascular complications.

1. To determine the relationships between parathyroid hormone activity and long-term sodium fluoride therapy in osteoporosis, cytochemical bioassays (for biologically active parathyroid hormone) were performed in 22 osteoporotic control patients and in 18 patients after 15 ± 10 months of treatment (60 mg of sodium fluoride daily). Ten patients were studied longitudinally by repeated metabolic balances and were therefore common to both groups. All patients were receiving mineral supplements.. 2. Cross-sectional data showed a fourfold mean increase in biologically active parathyroid hormone on fluoride treatment (P , 0.005) together with a 51% increase in serum alkaline phosphatase (P , 0.005). Longitudinal data showed, in addition, a significant increase in the calcium balance of 2.4 ± 1.2 (sem) mmol daily (P , 0.05) and the development of a positive phosphorus balance (P , 0.02).. 3.

Total PTH and ProPTH is slices and media were measured by specific radioimmunoassays. PTH secretion rates changed 5-fold when calcium was lowered from 2 mM to 1 mM. Secretion of ...
Preliminary results from the department of Old Age Psychiatry, Stavanger University Hospital, support a high prevalence of Secondary Hyperparathyroidism because of low vitamin D in the elderly. Normalisation of plasma parathyroid hormone levels after treatment with Vitamin D was associated with an improvement of psychiatric symptoms in some cases. Low vitamin D status resulting in inadequate calcium absorption is highly prevalent in both genders universally (30-80%). One major health related outcome is a high frequency of osteoporosis in Norway, which leads to a high incidence of fractures. Another effect of deficient vitamin D and low dietary Calcium is an up-regulation of parathyroid hormone, resulting in secondary hyperparathyroidism (HPT). Parathyroid hormone receptors 2(PTH2R) are expressed in the brain in locations involved in regulation of fear, anxiety, release of pituitary hormones and nociception. A deranged Calcium metabolism appears to be associated with impaired neuropsychological ...
Hypersecretion of parathyroid hormone - Ionized Calcium 4.65, PTH 133, Calcium 10.3, Vitamin D 7, Phosphorus 4.9, recurrent Kidney stones. Thyroid lobe, two parathyroids removed in 2004. Uncertain. These test results dont add up to a straight forward answer. However, I would be concerned about the possibility of recurrent primary hyperparathyroidism. You should take Vit D to eliminate Vit D deficiency as a cause for high PTH levels. Once this is done, if you still have high PTH with high calcium levels, you have recurrent primary HPTH and will need surgery again.

In this community-based study of ambulatory older adults without known cardiovascular disease, the combination of low vitamin D and high PTH concentrations identified a group of participants at a 2.5-fold risk for SCD compared with the group with normal levels of both markers. As individual risk factors, neither low vitamin D nor high PTH concentrations were associated with SCD events. These findings thus validate only part of our original hypothesis describing a link between the mineral metabolism pathway and SCD.. Participants with both low vitamin D and high PTH concentrations may have a greater degree of mineral metabolism dysregulation and a greater risk for SCD. Because these hormones are interrelated and represent markers of the same pathway, we had hypothesized that a simultaneous assessment may identify a higher-risk subgroup at risk for SCD. This combined abnormality likely identifies a subset of participants with decreased vitamin D substrate and inadequate stimulation of the vitamin ...
Objectives: Animal and in vitro studies suggest that parathyroid hormone (PTH) may affect articular cartilage. However, little is known of the relationship between PTH and human joints in vivo. Design: Longitudinal. Setting: Barwon Statistical Division, Victoria, Australia. Participants: 101 asymptomatic women aged 35-49 years (2007-2009) and without clinical knee osteoarthritis, selected from the population-based Geelong Osteoporosis Study. Risk factors: Blood samples obtained 10 years before (1994-1997) and stored at −80°C for random batch analyses. Serum intact PTH was quantified by chemiluminescent enzyme assay. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) was assayed using equilibrium radioimmunoassay. Models were adjusted for age, bone area and body mass index; further adjustment was made for 25(OH)D and calcium supplementation. Outcome: Knee cartilage volume, measured by MRI. Results: A higher lnPTH was associated with reduced medial-but not lateral-cartilage volume (regression coefficient±SD, p value
The study by Raisz and colleagues reported in this issue (1), although based on a small number of samples, illustrates both the assets and limitations of commercially available radioimmunoassays for immunoreactive parathyroid hormone (iPTH). When the same samples from 15 patients with surgically proven hyperparathyroidism were analyzed, good agreement was found among three of the four participating laboratories. A positive correlation between serum calcium and iPTH was seen in two of the four laboratories and is reported to be present in a third when more samples are analyzed (2). The values obtained for plasma iPTH in 14 hypercalcemic patients with ...
Parathyroid hormone is hormone substance released by your parathyroid glands. It functions in the regulation of Calcium and Phosphorus balance in the
Hyperparathyroidism - The parathyroid glands regulate calcium and phosphorus levels by releasing variable amounts of parathyroid hormone, which raises serum calcium levels while lowering serum phosphorus. Under usual conditions, the rate of secretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH) is inversely proportional to the serum calcium level. Secretion of PTH is mainly controlled through the interaction of calcium with specific calcium-sensing receptors on the membrane of parathyroid cells.Hyperparathyroidism is a syndrome of hypercalcemia resulting from excessive release of parathyroid hormone.

A 33-year-old woman presented for the first time at the age of 9 years with recurrent seizures and was subsequently treated for epilepsy for 2 years. At 11 years of age, it was noted that the patient had hypocalcemia with an increased parathyroid hormone (PTH) measured with use of an intact PTH assay. Serum calcium was 5.73 mg/dL [1.43 mmol/L; reference interval (RI) 8.82-10.42 mg/dL (2.2-2.6 mmol/L)]; serum phosphate was 10.42 mg/dL [3.36 mmol/L; RI 1.86-4.34 mg/dL (0.6 -1.4 mmol/L)]; and PTH was 319.68 pg/mL [33.9 pmol/L; RI 8.49-68.84 pg/mL (0.9 -7.3 mmol/ L)]. Vitamin D (Total 25-OH; 25-OH D2 and D3) concentrations, magnesium concentrations, liver and renal function tests were all normal. No other endocrine abnormalities such as thyroid or gonadotropin resistance were detected. The patient also was of short stature and was overweight. However, she became overweight after the age of 13 years (body mass index at 13 years was 22.8 kg/m2), and the short stature was not significant, as she was at ...
We thank Hjelmesæth et al. (1) for their comments on our recent publication (2). It would be ideal to evaluate the effects of plasma parathyroid hormone (PTH), calcium, and 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] simultaneously on metabolic syndrome; however, with limited plasma samples, neither PTH nor calcium could be measured in our study. Nonetheless, besides reporting that PTH level was associated with metabolic syndrome only in older men but not in older women or young participants, Reis et al. (3) also reported that the association between 25(OH)D level and metabolic syndrome was independent to PTH levels and calcium intake. It is true that PTH but not 25(OH)D was associated with metabolic syndrome in the Rancho Bernardo cohort (4), but the mean 25(OH)D concentration in this population was remarkably higher (108.9 nmol/l) than that in other study populations in which vitamin D deficiency commonly occurred among participants. Moreover, although controlling for PTH, calcium, and IGF-1 only yielded a ...
This annotation describes some early rat studies which conclude that parathyroid hormone (PTH) has more dramatic stimulatory effects on bone repair than on untraumatized bone. It also suggests, based on the effects of PTH on osteoblasts, that it is more likely to accelerate normal fracture healing than to prevent nonunion. The only 2 controlled clinical trials that have been published are critically discussed. Although both are encouraging and appear to show acceleration of normal fracture healing, they have methodological shortcomings that preclude definitive conclusions.. ...
Parathyroid hormone regulates serum calcium through its effects on bone, kidney, and the intestine:[5]. In bone, PTH enhances the release of calcium from the large reservoir contained in the bones.[16] Bone resorption is the normal destruction of bone by osteoclasts, which are indirectly stimulated by PTH. Stimulation is indirect since osteoclasts do not have a receptor for PTH; rather, PTH binds to osteoblasts, the cells responsible for creating bone. Binding stimulates osteoblasts to increase their expression of RANKL and inhibits their secretion of Osteoprotegerin (OPG). Free OPG competitively binds to RANKL as a decoy receptor, preventing RANKL from interacting with RANK, a receptor for RANKL. The binding of RANKL to RANK (facilitated by the decreased amount of OPG available for binding the excess RANKL) stimulates these osteoclast precursors to fuse, forming new osteoclasts, which ultimately enhances bone resorption. Another mechanism to regulate this pathways as PTH does is by estrogen. ...

BACKGROUND: Parathyroid hormone (PTH) and PTH-related peptide (PTHrP) belong to a family of endocrine factors that share a highly conserved N-terminal region (amino acids 1-34) and play key roles in calcium homeostasis, bone formation and skeletal development. Recently, PTH-like peptide (PTH-L) was identified in teleost fish raising questions about the evolution of these proteins. Although PTH and PTHrP have been intensively studied in mammals their function in other vertebrates is poorly documented. Amphibians and birds occupy unique phylogenetic positions, the former at the transition of aquatic to terrestrial life and the latter at the transition to homeothermy. Moreover, both organisms have characteristics indicative of a complex system in calcium regulation. This study investigated PTH family evolution in vertebrates with special emphasis on Xenopus and chicken.RESULTS: The PTH-L gene is present throughout the vertebrates with the exception of placental mammals. Gene structure of PTH and ...
PTH-Intact measures only the biologically active hormone and provides a more precise assessment of parathyroid function in patients with renal disease and those with age-related diseases of glomerular filtration. Intact PTH contains 84 amino acids with biological activity residing in the N-terminal third of the molecule. Therefore, synthetic PTH containing the first 34 amino acids has full biological activity. An inverse relationship exists between PTH secretion and free calcium, since free calcium in blood and intracellular fluid is the primary physiological regulator of PTH secretion. PTH influences both calcium and phosphate homeostasis through actions on bone, kidney, and (indirectly) on 1,25 hydroxyvitamin D. In the kidneys, PTH increases calcium absorption in the distal tubule of the nephron. PTH decreases reabsorption of phosphate by the proximal tubule and stimulates the production of 1,25 hydroxyvitamin D, which stimulates the intestinal absorption of both calcium and phosphate. ...
PTH elevates calcium level by dissolving the salts in bone and preventing their renal excretion. Stimulates [1-14C]-2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) transport and glycogen synthesis in osteoblastic cells.
article{08378271-48a7-4272-8185-79f879144383, abstract = {,p,It has been suggested that calcium changes the set point of the pituitary thyroid feedback. It is not known, however, if small and slow changes of calcium and/or parathyroid hormone (PTH) within the physiological range influence the serum levels of thyrotropin (TSH) and thyroid hormones in healthy subjects or patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT). Nine healthy subjects and nine patients with pHPT were therefore investigated with an oral calcium load test. The patients were investigated before and 4 days after operation. During the test, serum levels of ionized calcium increased and serum levels of intact PTH decreased in both healthy subjects and patients pre- and postoperatively (p < 0.001). Furthermore, in patients, the suppressibility of serum levels of PTH by calcium increased postoperatively (p < 0.05). Serum levels of TSH decreased during the oral calcium load in healthy subjects (p < 0.01) but not in ...

BACKGROUND: Parathyroid hormone increases bone strength primarily by stimulating bone formation, whereas antiresorptive drugs reduce bone resorption. We conducted a randomized, double-blind clinical study of parathyroid hormone and alendronate to test the hypothesis that the concurrent administration of the two agents would increase bone density more than the use of either one alone. METHODS: A total of 238 postmenopausal women (who were not using bisphosphonates) with low bone mineral density at the hip or spine (a T score of less than -2.5, or a T score of less than -2.0 with an additional risk factor for osteoporosis) were randomly assigned to daily treatment with parathyroid hormone (1-84) (100 microg; 119 women), alendronate (10 mg; 60 women), or both (59 women) and were followed for 12 months. Bone mineral density at the spine and hip was assessed by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry and quantitative computed tomography. Markers of bone turnover were measured in fasting blood samples.
INDICATIONS AND USAGE. Download Full Prescribing Information. Predialysis Patients: Rocaltrol is indicated in the management of secondary hyperparathyroidism and resultant metabolic bone disease in patients with moderate to severe chronic renal failure (Ccr 15 to 55 mL/min) not yet on dialysis. In children, the creatinine clearance value must be corrected for a surface area of 1.73 square meters. A serum iPTH level of ≥ 100 pg/mL is strongly suggestive of secondary hyperparathyroidism. Dialysis Patients: Rocaltrol is indicated in the management of hypocalcemia and the resultant metabolic bone disease in patients undergoing chronic renal dialysis. In these patients, Rocaltrol administration enhances calcium absorption, reduces serum alkaline phosphatase levels, and may reduce elevated parathyroid hormone levels and the histological manifestations of osteitis fibrosa cystica and defective mineralization. Hypoparathyroidism Patients: Rocaltrol is also indicated in the management of hypocalcemia ...

Your dog may need to be hospitalized initially for medical management of low levels of calcium in the blood, at least until the clinical signs are controlled. Other treatment will be dependent on whether any other underlying conditions have been diagnosed.. Emergency treatment is usually only needed for certain patients, such as those with primary hypoparathyroidism, or hypoparathyroidism that is secondary to procedures that have been used to correct excessive levels of thyroid hormone or excessive levels of parathyroid hormone -- that is, procedures that have been medically used to lower the amount of parathyroid hormone in the blood, and have resulted in levels of parathyroid hormone that are now too low.. If your dog has been diagnosed with hypocalcemia, low calcium levels in the blood, your doctor will prescribe long-term treatment for the condition. Vitamin D will be needed indefinitely, with the dosage amount determined by your veterinarian, based on your dogs needs. Calcium supplements ...
Parathyroid Hormone-like related Protein (PTHrP) is a member of the Parathyroid hormone family that is expressed in the mammary gland. It is known as a potent inhibitor of chondrocyte maturation. PTHrP is expressed by periarticular perichondrial cells and exerts its biological activity on PP-R expressing cells. During endochondral bone development PTHrP plays a major role in suppressing the onset of hypertrophic differentiation. It is also responsible for most cases of humoral hypercalcemia of malignancy. Recombinant Human PTHrP is a 9.8 kDa protein consisting of 86 amino acid residues ...

Parathyroid glands are small endocrine glands in the neck of humans and other tetrapods that produce parathyroid hormone. Humans usually have four parathyroid glands, variably located on the back of the thyroid gland. Parathyroid hormone and calcitonin (one of the hormones made by the thyroid gland) have key roles in regulating the amount of calcium in the blood and within the bones. Parathyroid glands share a similar blood supply, venous drainage, and lymphatic drainage to the thyroid glands. Parathyroid glands are derived from the epithelial lining of the third and fourth pharyngeal pouches, with the superior glands arising from the fourth pouch, and the inferior glands arising from the higher third pouch. The relative position of the inferior and superior glands, which are named according to their final location, changes because of the migration of embryological tissues. Hyperparathyroidism and hypoparathyroidism, characterized by alterations in the blood calcium levels and bone metabolism, ...

Six hypoparathyroid patients were treated with oral furosemide for 4 days. All six had a significant decrease in serum ionized calcium level from the control period (4.05 ± 0.31 mg/dl) to the furosemide period (3.46 ± 0.26 mg/dl, P , 0.005). In five patients, the decrease in serum ionized calcium concentration occurred in association with an increase in urinary calcium excretion. Although serum immunoreactive parathyroid hormone level increased in five patients, it was insufficient to return serum ionized calcium to control levels. Changes in serum phosphorus, magnesium, or pH could not account for the observed decrease in serum ionized calcium concentration. It is necessary to monitor serum ionized calcium level in hypoparathyroid patients during furosemide therapy. ...
Calcium removal from bone of the amphibian, R. catesbiana, was studied utilizing the technique of peritoneal lavage. Calcium changes in the lavage fluid were compared in parathyroidectomized and control frogs at two temperatures (4°C. and 22°C.). A histological comparison between parathyroid glands of lavaged animals and non-lavaged controls was made. In addition, the distribution and frequency of osteoclasts in the various bones of this frog were examined to relate their occurrence with the state of activity of the parathyroid glands. The results of these studies suggest that parathyroid function as related to its influence on bone follows the same pattern in the frog as has been reported previously for the rat. Both control and parathyroidectomized frogs were capable of supplying calcium from bone to peritoneal fluid as demonstrated by the lavage procedures. The frog could not, however, maintain this process indefinitely, for in all cases extremely erratic removal was noted after six hours ...
Etelcalcetide (formerly velcalcetide, trade name Parsabiv) is a calcimimetic drug for the treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism in patients undergoing hemodialysis. It is administered intravenously at the end of each dialysis session. Etelcalcetide functions by binding to and activating the calcium-sensing receptor in the parathyroid gland. Parsabiv is currently owned by Amgen and Ono Pharmaceuticals in Japan. Etelcalcetide is used for the treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism in people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on hemodialysis. Hyperparathyroidism is the condition of elevated parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels and is often observed in people with CKD. Etelcalcetide functions by binding to and activating the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) in the parathyroid gland as an allosteric activator, resulting in PTH reduction and suppression. Etelcalcetide functions in a first order elimination, with a half life of 19 hours. No interaction studies in humans were conducted. Studies in ...

PTH is the first Food and Drug Administration-approved agent that stimulates bone formation. According to Crandalls review, many small trials showed that daily subcutaneous PTH increases bone mass and 1 large RCT showed that it reduces fracture risk. The substantial risk reduction with 21 months of PTH resembles that seen with 1 to 2 years of alendronate or risedronate in patients who have osteoporosis (1−4). Treatment with PTH involves daily self-injections and is expensive. Thus, use of PTH should be limited to patients at high risk for fractures who have ≥ 1 vertebral fracture. The currently approved single 18- to 24-month course of daily PTH may not optimize use of PTH. Less frequent administration and shorter, longer, or repeated courses should be tested in trials to find ways to restore the architecture of bone and, perhaps, reach the previously elusive goal of curing patients with severe osteoporosis. As Crandall points out, the effect of combining antiresorptives and PTH needs ...
Left ventricular hypertrophy (symmetric, asymmetric, or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) is an almost invariable accompaniment of primary hyperparathyroidism. Five of 18 patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy had raised serum concentrations of parathyroid hormone with normal serum calcium concentrations. Left ventricular hypertrophy did not occur in any of the six patients with hypercalcaemia alone. These relations suggest that parathyroid hormone rather than a rise in the extracellular calcium concentration is associated with a spectrum of left ventricular hypertrophy. All patients with increased circulating parathyroid hormone concentrations should have echocardiographic examination of the left ventricle. Conversely, parathyroid hormone concentrations should be measured in all patients with left ventricular hypertrophy from an unknown cause, especially those with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. ...
On 27 July the US Food and Drug Administration held a public hearing on an application for a licence for the use of recombinant human parathyroid hormone in the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis. The application, from Eli Lilly, is for teriparatide (Forsteo), the N-terminal fragment rhPTH(1-34). The hearings advisory panel voted unanimously in favour of the parathyroid hormone and approval could be expected after resolution of a few technical concerns. The application was partly based on solid evidence that parathyroid hormone, given as a daily injection for several weeks or months in experimental animals, increases bone mass and strength.1 This evidence led to a multicentre randomised controlled trial in women with osteoporosis, which showed that treatment with parathyroid hormone reduced spine fractures by 66% to 90% (according to whether smaller fractures and those causing minor symptoms were counted) and other fractures by 50%.2. The first experiments showing an anabolic effect of ...
Objectives: This prospective study was designed to investigate the effect of levothyroxine suppression therapy for benign thyroid nodules on markers of bone turnover in premenopausal women. Patients and Methods: The study included 28 premenopausal women who received levothyroxine suppression therapy for benign thyroid nodules for one year. The size of the thyroid gland and nodules, biochemical markers of bone turnover and urinary calcium excretion were measured before and after levothyroxine suppression therapy. Results: No significant adverse effects were seen during levothyroxine treatment. Decreases in total thyroid volume and the size of the nodules were not significant at the end of treatment. Although levothyroxine suppression therapy did not result in changes in serum levels of calcium and phosphor, and urinary calcium excretion, bone turnover markers, namely serum osteocalcin and urinary deoxypyridinoline levels, increased significantly. Serum intact parathyroid hormone levels showed a ...

AU - Chang, Hang-Seok. AU - Park, Cheong Soo. PY - 2010/1/1. Y1 - 2010/1/1. N2 - Introduction: This study aims to describe our experiences of parathyroid carcinoma. Materials and Methods: The data of clinicopathological features, surgical treatment and outcomes of seven cases of parathyroid carcinoma among 171 patients who underwent surgery for primary hyperparathyroidism over a 16-year period were analyzed. Results: The major symptoms at the diagnosis included a neck mass in three cases and multiple bone pain in five. Two patients were asymptomatic. No remarkable increases of serum calcium levels were noted in the patients, but serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) concentrations were high in most of the patients (4 of 5 in available). A variety of imaging studies including ultrasonography, sestamibi scan, ...
Background: Following spinal cord injury (SCI) declines in sub-lesional bone mineral density (BMD) occur, and are associated with a high prevalence of fractures. Conventional risk factors for osteoporosis diagnosis in the non-SCI population put all individuals with SCI at a high risk of fracturing, however not all experience fractures. Vitamin D and parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels have been linked to skeletal health in the non-SCI population, and therefore may be a fracture risk factor worth targeting post-SCI. Objectives: To evaluate: 1) the prevalence of suboptimal vitamin D (Serum 25(OH)D ,75nmol/L) status and identify the relationships between 25(OH)D and bone quality; and 2) the prevalence of secondary hyperparathyroidism (Serum intact PTH ≥ 7.0 pmol/L) and identify the relationships between serum PTH and bone quality, in males and females with chronic SCI. Methods: Individuals were assessed via cross-sectional study design. Serum 25(OH)D was measured using a chemiluminescent immunoassay ...
Parathyroid carcinoma is a rare endocrine malignancy with an estimated incidence of less than 1 per million population. Excessive secretion of parathyroid hormone, extremely high serum calcium level, and the deleterious effects of hypercalcaemia are the clinical manifestations of the disease. Up to 60% of patients develop multiple disease recurrences and although long-term survival is possible with palliative surgery, permanent remission is rarely achieved. Molecular drivers of sporadic parathyroid carcinoma have remained largely unknown. Previous studies, mostly based on familial cases of the disease, suggested potential roles for the tumour suppressor MEN1 and proto-oncogene RET in benign parathyroid tumourigenesis, while the tumour suppressor HRPT2 and proto-oncogene CCND1 may also act as drivers in parathyroid cancer. Here, we report the complete genomic analysis of a sporadic and recurring parathyroid carcinoma. Mutational landscapes of the primary and recurrent tumour specimens were analysed using

PY - 1991/3/1. Y1 - 1991/3/1. N2 - An automated sandwich immunoassay was developed based on high-performance immunoaffinity chromatography and chemiluminescent detection, using the determination of parathyroid hormone (PTH) in plasma as a model system. In this method, Injections of plasma and acrldinium ester-labeled antl-(1-34 PTH) antibodies were made onto a column containing Immobilized anti-(44-68 PTH) antibodies. Upon elution, PTH and Its associated labeled antibody were combined with an alkaline peroxide postcolumn reagent, and the resulting light production was measured. Factors considered in optimizing this system included the columns dissociation properties, the rate of light production in the postcolumn reactor, and the use of sequential vs simultaneous injection of sample and labeled ...

An example of negative feedback is the regulation of the blood calcium level. The parathyroid glands secrete parathyroid hormone, which regulates the blood calcium amount. If calcium decreases, the parathyroid glands sense the decrease and secrete more parathyroid hormone. The parathyroid hormone stimulates calcium release from the bones and increases the calcium uptake into the bloodstream from the collecting tubules in the kidneys. Conversely, if blood calcium increases too much, the parathyroid glands reduce parathyroid hormone production. Both responses are examples of negative feedback because in both cases the effects are negative (opposite) to the stimulus.. Positive feedback mechanisms control self-perpetuating events that can be out of control and do not require continuous adjustment. In positive feedback mechanisms, the original stimulus is promoted rather than negated. Positive feedback increases the deviation from an ideal normal value. Unlike negative feedback that maintains hormone ...
Parathyroid hormone (PTH) has an important role in the maintenance of serum calcium levels. It activates renal 1α-hydroxylase and increases the synthesis of the active form of vitamin D (1,25[OH]2D3). PTH promotes calcium release from the bone and enhances tubular calcium resorption through direct action on these sites. Hallmarks of secondary hyperparathyroidism associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) include increase in serum fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23), reduction in renal 1,25[OH]2D3 production with a decline in its serum levels, decrease in intestinal calcium absorption, and, at later stages, hyperphosphatemia and high levels of PTH. In this paper, we aim to critically discuss severe CKD-related hyperparathyroidism, in which PTH, through calcium-dependent and -independent mechanisms, leads to harmful effects and manifestations of the uremic syndrome, such as bone loss, skin and soft tissue calcification, cardiomyopathy, immunodeficiency, impairment of erythropoiesis, increase of
A peculiar characteristic of parathyroid tissue is the ability to spontaneously induce angiogenesis, to proliferate and to secrete PTH when autotransplanted in patients undergoing total parathyroidectomy. Since stem/progenitor cells have been involved in the process of tissue regeneration, we searched for putative parathyroid progenitors from human normal and tumoral parathyroids. By immunohistochemistry, FACS analysis and cell culture we identified parathyroid cells positive for the haematopoietic/endothelial marker CD34 which expressed surface antigens typical of endothelial progenitors, such as CD146 and CXCR4, but not the haematopoietic and mesenchymal markers, such as CD45, Thy-1/CD90, CD105 and CD117/c-kit. These cells were more abundant in tumoral than in normal parathyroids (4.4±1.2 and 2.2±0.9% respectively; P=0.05), without any difference in their immunophenotype except for the expression of nestin, a neural stem cell specific marker, which was almost exclusively restricted to the ...

Doctors do not know what causes early hypocalcemia.. Late hypocalcemia is rare and has a number of known causes. Late hypocalcemia is usually caused by drinking cows milk or formula that has too much phosphate. It may be connected to calcium and phosphorus levels in the body. It can also be caused by a problem with parathyroid hormone. This hormone is made by the parathyroid glands in the neck. It helps keep the amount of calcium and phosphorus at a normal level in the blood. Low parathyroid hormone levels can cause too little calcium in the blood. A number of conditions, such as DiGeorge syndrome (22q11.2 deletion syndrome), may cause low parathyroid hormone levels. ...
ABBREVIATIONS & DEFINITIONS. Hypocalcemia: low calcium levels in the blood, a complication from thyroid surgery that is usually short-term and relatively easily treated with calcium pills. If left untreated, low calcium may be associated with muscle twitching or cramping and, if severe, can cause seizures and/or heart problems. Parathyroid glands: usually four small glands located around the thyroid that secrete parathyroid hormone (PTH) which regulates the bodys calcium levels. Parathyroid hormone (PTH): the hormone that regulates the bodys calcium levels. High levels of PTH cause hypercalcemia, or too much calcium in the blood. Low levels of PTH cause hypocalcemia, or too little calcium in the blood. Hypoparathyroidism: low calcium levels due to decreased secretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH) from the parathyroid glands next to the thyroid. This can occur as a result of damage to the glands during thyroid surgery and usually resolves. This may also occur as a result of autoimmune ...

Operating without evaluating all four parathyroid glands is cheating. All five of the cheating methods above are done for one of two reasons, 1) the surgeon does not feel comfortable with his/her ability to find all four parathyroid glands (they lack the skill and they know it!) or 2) the surgeon believes that a cure rate of 90% or less is OK, and believes that he/she can simply operate on you again in the future if you arent cured. How do we know this with such confidence? Because we used to be one of those surgeons who didnt think it was necessary to evaluate all four parathyroid glands. Up until 2002 we thought that we could tell which patients needed to have all four parathyroid glands evaluated, and which ones only needed 1 or two parathyroid glands evaluated. (see our publication citation at the bottom of this page). We gave up on that one-side operation because it doesnt work. We used to think that we could cure most people with a one-side unilateral operation, and that it was OK to ...
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that lies in front of the windpipe (trachea), just below the voice box (larynx). The thyroid gland uses iodine from food to make two thyroid hormones that regulate the way the body uses energy.. The parathyroid glands are four tiny glands located behind the thyroid gland. The parathyroid glands produce a substance (parathyroid hormone) that helps control the amount of calcium in the blood. ...

To the Editor:. An 84-year-old woman with a history of surgical menopause at the age of 37 years, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and prolonged corticosteroid use (prescribed by her general pratictioner for osteoarthritis-related pain), sustained a low-trauma vertebral fracture at L3 level. Radiographs showed previous L2 fracture. Other investigations were unremarkable, except for low 25-OH vitamin D levels (22.1 ng/ml) and elevated plasma parathyroid hormone (144 pg/ml). She was then diagnosed with osteoporosis, supplemented with 300,000 IU of oral cholecalciferol, and started therapy with neridronic acid (NA), 100 mg intravenously1. Corticosteroids had been tapered before starting NA. The day after her first NA dose, she noticed polyarthralgia, myalgia, and fever (to 38°C). Over the subsequent 5 days, symptoms eased, but she experienced progressive pain and swelling of her left shoulder. Pain was severe and she was unable to lift her left arm for activities of daily living. She came to ...
People with kidney disease develop abnormalities of the day to day routine maintenance of their bones and the metals, minerals and chemical messengers associated with bone health. This may cause bone disease but may also lead to blood vessels becoming furred-up or hardened with calcium. These hardened vessels can ultimately cause death or disability due to cardiovascular disease (e.g. strokes, heart attacks, amputations).. In clinical practice these bone and mineral abnormalities are managed using a range of treatments (e.g. vitamin D and phosphate binders). The initiation and dose of drugs given are largely guided by laboratory tests, including measurement of a chemical messenger called parathyroid hormone. However, parathyroid hormone is not a good marker for bone disease in people who also have kidney failure. There is some concern that treatments guided by parathyroid hormone may actually make the underlying condition worse. At present most members of the renal multidisciplinary team along ...
SERUM LEVELS OF CORTICOSTERONE, PROGESTERONE, PARATHYROID HORMONE AND CALCITONIN IN OVARIECTOMIZED RATS AFTER 3-MONTH TREATMENT WITH UKRAIN. JABLONSKI M.. Department of Orthopedics, Medical University School, Lublin, Poland.. Address for correspondence: M. Jablonski, Department of Orthopedics, Medical University School, Jaczewskiego 8, 20-090 Lublin, Poland. Summary: Ukrain was administered intraperitoneally to ovariectomized rats at doses of 7, 14 and 28 mg/kg every other day for 10 days, followed by a 10-day break. This procedure was performed five times. Serum lev-els of selected calciotropic hormones, i.e., corticosterone, progesterone, parathyroid hormone and calcitonin, were assessed. A decrease of serum corticosterone in relation to controls occurred in serum levels of ovariec-tomized rats treated with Ukrain 14 mg/kg compared with ovariectomized-only rats. Ovariectomy caused a sig-nificant drop in serum levels of progesterone. Ukrain did not significantly affect serum levels of this ...
